Movie Monday: Awakening the Dreamer

This summer I had the privilege of partaking in a symposium called Awakening the Dreamer. It was a life changing experience that held me tightly in the pain of the planet while simultaneously giving me hope and an unthwartable ability to take action and move forward, without fear and anger. I consider this a rather…

In the permaculture design certificate course that I took here in August of 2010, one of the first things we talked about was how we define permaculture and wow, there are literally as many variations on the definition of it as there are people on the planet!

How do you like our website improvements?

Some of you might have noticed the sore lack of blog interaction over the holidays? I hope that this post will give you an idea of just what we’ve been up to, even though we haven’t captured it in real time. The biggest change is the new architecture of the website.  Justin and I have…

Imitation, the highest form of flattr-y

No, that’s not a spelling error… its all the rage on the web right now, and I want you to follow suit. I need you to know that my motives are entirely selfish. I want to give you money for what you are doing. The deal is that I have given myself a certain amount…
